Thresholds Substance Use Treatment
The Thresholds Substance Use Treatment Program empowers individuals to clarify personal values and life goals, gain knowledge and support, and practice skills needed to build hopeful and healthier futures.
Thresholds provides Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Services that are person-centered, trauma-informed, holistic, and supported by strong research evidence.
Our program delivers affirming, inclusive, culturally-relevant and gender-responsive treatment, operating within the frameworks of trauma-informed care and cultural humility. Thresholds provides integrated treatment using evidence-supported practices, including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness-based sobriety, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, harm reduction, relapse prevention therapy, mutual aid facilitation and medication assisted treatment.
All members initially participate in an admission assessment to determine their level of care and treatment needs. A treatment plan is collaboratively developed and tailored to meet each individual’s situation and treatment preferences.
Thresholds offers an array of group and individual counseling services, including: therapy, recovery coaching, case management, family/couples counseling, and medication-assisted treatment. The type, frequency, and duration of services is based on individual needs and preferences. DUI services are also available, including: updated evaluation, counseling, treatment, and education.
Outpatient Services may be entered directly after the admission assessment for individuals who require and/or prefer less intensive services; or as a “step-down,” following completion of Intensive Outpatient Services. Members can access the array of services listed above from 0.5 to 8.5 hours each week.
Intensive Outpatient Services members can access the array of services listed above for at least 9 hours each week. Members will typically engage in Intensive Outpatient for 2-8 weeks before “stepping-down” to outpatient services.
Where the admission assessment indicates a need for a level of care that is not offered by Thresholds, an appropriate referral will be made.
Our community-based services help people access recovery services while continuing to live in their communities, so that they can effectively address the challenges they face in their immediate life situations.
Thresholds recognizes that individuals are unique in terms of their needs, preferences, and readiness to change. This requires a person-centered approach where diversity and autonomy are respected. We ultimately seek to partner with each client in their personal path towards a more fulfilling life.
Thresholds understands those it serves are whole persons. Substance use problems do not occur and should not be treated in isolation, but rather as part of a holistic range of bio-psychosocial concerns:
- The biological realm includes the behavioral aspects of physical health, including exercise, diet, sleep, and relaxation. Primary biological approaches also include addiction medicines to reduce cravings and psychiatric medications to address co-occurring mental disorders.
- The psychological realm includes motivation enhancement, skill building (such as stress-management, impulse delay, drug refusal, and mindfulness for craving-management), and relapse prevention planning. Co-occurring mental health issues are treated conjointly with substance use problems, as integrated treatment yields the best and most sustaining results.
- The social realm includes family, friends, co-workers, and others in the person’s interpersonal sphere, all of whom help to comprise the recovery environment. Thresholds engages these significant others, when appropriate, through family counseling and education. Access to mutual aid resources, such as SMART Recovery and twelve-step programs, are provided to help the person strengthen their recovery environment. Thresholds is also aware of how one’s virtual environment can be an important aspect of recovery, and seeks to work with each person on how social media and online recovery resources impact their recovery. Thresholds offers free download of a recovery oriented app to enhance clients’ virtual recovery environment.
